I got a perfect score. And this is probably why I can't stand to work on non color-calibrated displays

Then I'd expect that sort of score. I got zero, but it took me a while to finish- were all your misses in the colors you expected?

Got a 0.
It did take me a while, and I did lean in rather close.

Great link.

Lucky you. On my Dell monitor at work, the blocks changed colors when I shifted them...it was like WTF? The same block goes from aquamarine to teal when I moved it one space...very much bad for photo work. (But then again, I don't do art work at work, only bean counting.) At first I thought it was my eyes playing tricks, but when I scrolled up slightly, the color shifted again.

I scored a 19. I doubt I'd do much better even with a properly calibrated monitor. I'm a guy, I can't help it.

I'm happy with that. Calibrated my monitor last week. I would be interested to see if it makes a difference doing it at night with no daylight coming in. I might try again tonight for fun.
